Russia responded to threats of Czech diploma due to gas prices in Europe: Politics: Russia: Lenta.ru
Russian Senator Vladimir Dzhabarov, commenting on the words of the Czech diploma of Vaclav Bartushk regarding the gas crisis in Europe, stated that the European Union (EU) remains dependent on gas from Russia, since it is impossible to completely switch to green energy sources. About this he told RBC.
“It is not clear what kind of green energy he is counting on. Green energy is a matter of the future and very vague, ”the politician explained, noting that today the hydrocarbon mixture is in great demand in many refining areas of the petrochemical industry.
In addition, according to the senator, Bartushka’s mistake is that he speaks on behalf of the whole of Europe. Dzhabarov expressed doubt that all EU countries are in solidarity with the threats of Czech politics. He explained that the act of the Czech looks unfriendly towards Russia.
Earlier, Bartushka indicated that the EU should take a tough stance in gas purchases. He called on Europe to stop standing on ceremony with Moscow and declare a gas war in order to impose its role and superiority on the market.
The cost of electricity in Europe reached historic highs amid falling gas pressure from Russia and Norway, and also increased due to the recovery of the demand economy. Thus, the price of gas in Europe for the first time in history exceeded the $ 1,200 per thousand cubic meter mark.
